An alternative world already exists!

Our research is taking us along the roads of France and Europe. Thousands of initiatives have already made their place in society. We are seeking them out to share and transmit their stories and to build bridges, but also to learn, to understand and to advance along our own personal journey.

The objective of these episodes is not so much to give ready made solutions as to inspire. Yes, it is possible to live without money! Yes, it is possible to trust ones clients! Yes, it is possible to produce food with (almost) no effort! Each initiative has advantages and disadvantages and each is, above all, the product of its own particular context and its personalities with their own particular characters.

These episodes point the way to diverse possibilities. Its up to each of us to adapt them as we see fit so that we may, in turn, create and follow our own unique road.

The episodes are under a Creative Commons licence


Our primary objectif is to pass the message : alternative roads exist and it's possible to follow them. We want the episodes to be freely reusable by all, and for this reason we have put them under the Creative Commons licence.

creative commons, librement réutilisable, participation libre

What is a Creative Commons licence?

It is a licence that permits us to free our works from standard intellectuel property rights and is in contrast to classic Copyright laws which restrict the reutilisation, distribution and modification of works unless you have the authorisation of the author.
Work licenced under Creative Commons licences become common property, with some restrictions depending on the particular licenced used.

Our work is licenced under CC-BY-SA.

This means:
CC - a Creative Commons licence.
BY - if you use our work you must credit "Sideways, Roving WebSeries" as the author of the work
SA - Share Alike - you must share under the same conditions: if you use part of a video to, for example, create a new video, you cannot distribute or share our work under a different licence than that we have used (CC-BY-SA)

I would like to project your videos

Of course, with pleasure! Please don't hesitate to let us know by sending us an email. As with the whole project, film projections are open to free and volontary contributions. If our productions are useful for you and you have the means to participate in one way or another, we would be grateful for the opportunity to continue our adventure!

Even as a commercial proposition?

We haven't restricted our works to Creative Commons non-commercial usage only. Therefore you can project the films and charge an entry fee, as with many cinemas which have projected the films before the main film of the evening. Whatever kind of projection you would like to do is therefore possible!

I would like to reuse your images

We have not restricted our works to a Creative Commons no modification licence. You can therefore reuse and edit the images for your own creations. For example, a presentation video has been made by the Alternatiba Lille initiative which used our footage in order to have footage of existing alternatives. Don't hesitate to let us know about your productions, we'd love to see them (there is a restriction on some musics we use from the 10th episode)

Reuse the rushes of episodes

We have hours and hours of rushes for each episode. With others, we have thought about the possibility of sharing the rushes, but this is technically and legally complicated. We are however, motivated to share the rushes for other productions (or even for different productions of the same episode). If you are interested, don't hestitate to contact us.
